We’ve heard of father-son bonding over Corvettes, but this video takes it to a whole new level.
In fact, apparently even a criminal level.
Port Authority police this week arrested a New Jersey man and his son for causing an accident as they drag raced through the North Tube of Lincoln Tunnel back in February.
Chadwick Quinones, 25, originally fled the scene but came back 90 minutes later. At that time, he was issued three summonses in Weehawken, N.J., for leaving the scene of an accident, failure to exhibit registration and careless driving.
It might have just been recorded as another routine accident except Quinones couldn’t resist posting a dashcam video of the drag race with his father on Instagram.
The video allegedly shows Quinones in the right lane, passing the Corvette being driven by his dad, 44-year-old Fred Ordine. Quinones then crashes into a car on his left, bounces off the tunnel wall on his right, and then does a 360 spin-out before crashing into an SUV.
Naturally, such shenanigans aren’t very popular with authorities, who began a new investigation after learning about the video allegedly posted and then taken down by Quinones on Instagram. Police say the video can still be located, however, because it has been reposted to other accounts.
Tuesday, Port Authority Police Department officials arrested the two men and charged them with reckless endangerment, illegal speed contest, and reckless driving. They’re awaiting arraignment in Manhattan criminal court.
“We are committed to tracking down people who commit this type of reckless behavior and prosecuting them,” says Port Authority Police Chief Detective Matthew Wilson. “In doing so, we hope to deter others from doing the same.”
Our advice to others seeking father-son bonding time, take a trip to the National Corvette Museum Motorsports Park, and they’ll be glad to help you out on the race track where such antics belong.
